Wow, the weekend is over yet again! But one thing that I can say about this weekend is that it hasn't been like many others that I've had. After a hell of a week, this weekend had an interesting twist.
After my bacon-grease painstaking Monday, the remainder of the week as all a blur. Work, class, sleep, work, class, sleep, work, class, EXAM, sleep, work, sleep... you get my drift! I don't know if it's because Friday was pay day that my weekend took a 180 degree turn for the better, or the fact that I chose to make better decisions this weekend.
If you didn't know, which I'm sure of because I didn't tell, I've been on an anti-nap trip! Seriously, the amount of time I spend napping far exceeds what should be considered normal. I believe I inherited that trait from my mother who can literally sleep the day away. I'm sorry, but I realized that napping was a problem for me. Not saying that people shouldn't take naps, but the time spent napping should be minimal. I was out of control, sleeping anywhere between 2-4 hours. Obviously, this wasn't healthy. I usually woke up with headaches from oversleeping (yes, it's possible) and by the end of my workday I would be extremely exhausted to the point where I needed to take a nap! Sadly to say, my napping binge has been cut short. I managed to limit my naps to 1 hour if and when I do take them, and my boyfriend has been a huge help. So let me tell you all that I've been able to accomplish this weekend from not napping so much........
I had a nice dinner with my boyfriend Friday night at Red Lobster. We usually go out to eat a few times a month, but Friday was extremely nice because my sleep pattern has been normalized (for lack of a better word).
Saturday, I woke up early and began studying. This carried on until the later part of today. I was able to do a little shopping at Walmart and Ikea, and finish my laundry... which included hanging up and folding all of my clothes. I even curled my moms hair earlier tonight. I finished up some homework, and caught up on my reading. I did some research for a scholarship, and applied to participate in graduation (exciting)!!
Altogether, unlike last week, I am oh-so-ready to start this week. It feels wonderful knowing that since I've cut out my nap time, that I've been able to accomplish so much more than before! That idea was magical, needless to say!
What are some things that you've had to cut out in order to live a more wholesome life?
Because getting stuff done is productive - Tomayto, Tomahto…. If you creep up on my desk at any given moment, you could see one of many projects underway. I might be mocking something up in InDesign...
